Building Trust with Every Smile: Expert Pediatric Dentistry for Your Child


Dr. Schwed and his team are healers who provide individualized, premium dental care through a comprehensive holistic approach. Our mission is to advocate for a child’s best interests so each child can reach complete physical, mental, and emotional wellness.

You Can Trust Dr. Schwed

While Dr. Schwed is a big kid at heart, he takes the smile of every patient very seriously.  In fact he is among the less than 1% of all dentists in the US who are Board Certified in Pediatric Dentistry.  And as a father of 4 children, Dr. Schwed treats all of his patients like one of his own.

“I want your children to be comfortable in their dental home. One of my biggest priorities is for children to enjoy going to the dentist and to never be afraid.” 
-Dr. Matthew Schwed.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Trusted Pediatric Dentist

Welcome to Schwed Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, your trusted partner in safeguarding your child’s dental health. Our state-of-the-art dental office caters specifically to the oral health needs of children, offering a wide range of services from basic check-ups to complex dental procedures and high-end orthodontic treatments. 

What’s the difference between a pediatric dentist and a general dentist?

Pediatric dentists are more than just dentists, they are behavior specialists.  

Pediatric dentists complete a two year pediatrics residency after dental school where they learn various methods in behavioral sciences.

Pediatric dentists have various methods in their “toolbox” to make the process of going to the dentist and sitting for treatment a pleasant process for children. As a parent, you need practitioners who are experts in not just dentistry, but also the behavioral sciences of child development.

Additionally, pediatric dentists work with thousands of children and are very familiar with the anatomy of children’s teeth and development, whereas a general dentist primarily treats adults and usually sees a child once in a while.

Setting the Standard for Pediatric Dentistry in Texas

Here at Schwed Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we believe in creating a joyous and fear-free environment that forms positive associations with dental care early on in your child’s life.
